Mouth Ulcers

Mouth ulcer or canker sore.

While mouth ulcers normally aren't a serious condition, they can cause quite a bit of pain. They can occur for a variety of reasons and they can interfere with normal eating and drinking. These sores can appear on the tongue, the gums, the lips or inside the cheeks.


Early symptoms may include a tingling or burning sensation in the mouth. Ulcers, also called Canjer sores, may appear white or yellow, surrounded by red halos. They may appear singly or in clusters. It usually takes 7 to 10 days for them to heal.


Mouth ulcers can be caused by nutritional deficiencies like iron, trace minerals and vitamins, poor dental hygiene, food allergies, stress, biting the cheek, bowel disease, hormonal imbalance, skin disease and infections like herpes simplex.


If you find yourself with frequently recurring mouth ulcers, see your doctor. They may be a symptom of anemia or other more serious ailment.
